The Car Show on Eastern – Henderson, NV

Having lived in Las Vegas for 18 years, I’ve seen the local car scene go through cycles of varying levels of interest and enthusiasm. Even though the city hosts some very prominent events such as a NASCAR race, two NHRA races, and the SEMA convention every year, it’s never seen quite the same intensity on a grassroots level that I’ve seen in other places such as my home town of Columbus, OH, or especially that of Reno, NV during Hot August Nights.

Attending a local car show in the Vegas suburb of Henderson a couple weekends ago left me with much assurance and optimism that the car scene in Vegas is on the right path ready to thrive with an impressive display of cars that showed up at the Car Show on Eastern.

The Car Show on Eastern is a small informal gathering of enthusiasts held every Saturday morning from 7am to 10am in the parking lot of Twin Peaks restaurant on South Eastern Ave a couple blocks south of the 215 Freeway south of Las Vegas in Henderson, NV. The show is hosted and organized by Celebrity Cars of Las Vegas.  This location has been home to similar shows for an number of years, but it was this past October of 2016 that it officially became known as “The Car Show on Eastern”.

A wide variety of cars showed up with people almost constantly coming and going it’s hard to say exactly how many vehicles were present, but approximately 150 would be my guess. Everything from late model exotics, to motorcycles, to street rods, to original muscle cars made an appearance.

Here’s a sampling of some of the cooler rides in attendance I was able to capture:

Las Vegas based photographer, I have always been a huge fan of all forms of photography. It wasn't until relocating to Las Vegas and digital camera technology evolved that I was able to fully realize my love for photography. Automotive, motorcycles, beauty, glamour, pinup, retro, swimwear, and fitness themes are all areas of particular interest. 60's Muscle cars have been a part of my life since I was 14 years old with particular emphasis in Fords, Mustangs, and Shelbys being my specialty having owned and restored more than a couple rare examples. Having worked as a Ford Senior Master certified technician over 20 years has provided the means to stay current with cutting edge technology. A high performance late model fuel injected car has it's own unique appeal to me, just as the old school muscle does. Motorsports and college football are also huge passions of mine.
